Is that on Amiga Ed? As there's problems with wait on Amiga. Try
loop 10 [ print 1 wait 1]
I usually can't get to the end of that loop without REBOL locking up.
(Ctrl C needed to close the Console.) If you find that's the problem
- report it to feedback. It's an annoying bug, and it wouldn't hurt
to have RT reminded about it again before they bring out the next
release of REBOL. (;
